Description Edit | History

From the publisher's blurb:

Hello Explorers!

Issue 20 of the Frontier Explorer is now available. This issue marks five years of publishing the Frontier Explorer (how time flies). Together we’ve produced over 800 pages and over 400,000 words of content and by the looks of it we are still going strong.

This issue is primarily focused on creatures and races. What is a science fiction game without more races and creatures to play and discover? We have two race conversions and a large number of creatures (both new and converted from other systems) throughout the pages of this issue along with some of our staple columns.

Additionally we have an article that didn’t quite fit in our last robot issue, a continuation of our “New Player Primer” series that got started way back in issue 6 & 7 but has been on hiatus, a d100 table to grab a random world from, and a few other odds and ends.

The complete article list for this issue is:

New Player Primer: Vrusk
Creating Mid-level Characters in Star Frontiers
Who are the Raith?
The Frontier in Miniature: Shrubs, Cactus, and Flowering Bushes
Creature Conversions II
Titan Rising: 2299
Minotaur Rip Snake
Translator Microbes
Vembraces from the Minzii Marketplace
Badder Conversion
Malfunctioning Masseuse Bot
The Galactic “Hundred Acer Woods”
Grimz Guide Comic
